childhood & college
Greg's civic & philanthropic experiences can be traced back to his childhood & the first book he ever purchased with his own money -- a children's biography of Harriet Tubman. The book inspired him to want to make a difference. Soon after, he signed up for a Read-a-Thon (raising funds to help fight Multiple Sclerosis). Over the next few years, he remained actively involved in the Read-a-Thon. This sparked a lifelong interest in volunteerism & philanthropy. In high school, he volunteered with local kids through youth centers, camps & athletic leagues. In college, he volunteered at local schools off-campus; tutored former gang members trying to get their GEDs; launched a program that involved his college classmates volunteering with younger local students; interned on Capitol Hill & was appointed by the Dean to the position of Student Chairman of Community Service.
